This international volume examines the global construction of migrant care labour and how it manifests itself in different contexts.

Care Migration And Human Rights from the Author: Siobhán Mullally. "This book addresses the specific position of domestic workers in the context of evolving human rights norms. Human rights law has somewhat belatedly begun to address the structured inequalities and exclusions that define the domain of domestic work. The continuum of exploitation that has historically defined the everyday of domestic work exclusion from employment and social security standards and precarious migration status have frequently been neglected. However, as in other areas of international law, it is primarily the moments of crisis, incidents of human trafficking, slavery or forced labour, that have captured the attention of human rights law. Drawing upon a broad range of case studies, Care, Migration and Human Rights presents a thorough examination of key issues such as the commodification of care, the impact of the jurisprudence of the CJEU and the European Court of Human Rights on 'primary care providers', as well as the effect that trends in migration law have on migrant domestic workers. In addition to the question of how migration status impacts upon the effective realisation of rights, the editors also explore wider problems such as the continuing gendered division of labour and the absence of state or societal supports. This volume will be of interest to lawyers, academics and policy makers in the fields of human rights, migration, and gender studies"--

Migration Masculinities And Reproductive Labour from the Author: Ester Gallo. This innovative book analyses the role gender plays in the relationship between globalisation, migration and reproductive labour. Exploring the gendered experiences of migrant men and the social construction of racialised masculinities in the context of the 'international division of reproductive labour' (IDRL), it examines how new patterns of consumption and provision of paid domestic/care work lead to forms of inequality across racial, ethnic, gender and class lines. Based on an ethnographic analysis of the working and family lives of migrant men within the IDRL, it focuses on the practices and strategies of migrant men employed as domestic/care workers in Italy. The authors highlight how migrant men's experiences of reproductive labour and family are shaped by global forces and national public policies, and how they negotiate the changes and potential conflicts that their 'feminised' jobs entail. They draw on the voices of men and women of different nationalities to show how masculinities are constructed within the home through migrant men's interactions with male and female employers, women relations and their wider ethnic network. Bridging the divide between scholarship on international migration, care work and masculinity studies, this book will interest sociologists, anthropologists, economists, political scientists and social policy experts.

Paid Migrant Domestic Labour In A Changing Europe from the Author: Berit Gullikstad. This book analyses the changing face of work, gender equality and citizenship in Europe. Drawing on in-depth research conducted in nine different countries, it focuses on the discourses, social relations and political processes that surround paid domestic labour. In doing so, it rethinks the vital relationship between this kind of employment, the formal and informal citizenship of migrant workers and their employers, and the cultural and political value of gender equality. Approaching these as fluid, complex and interrelated phenomena that change according to local context, it will appeal to sociologists, political scientists, geographers, anthropologists and gender studies scholars.

Illegale Besch Ftigung In Europa Die Situation In Privathaushalten Lterer Personen from the Author: Christa Larsen. Wie kann eine qualitativ gute Betreuung und Pflege von älteren Menschen in ihren Haushalten sichergestellt werden? Diese Frage ist in vielen europäischen Ländern von großer Bedeutung, da die staatlichen Leistungen oft nicht ausreichen, um den tatsächlichen Bedarf an häuslicher Betreuung und Pflege abzudecken. Illegal beschäftigte Betreuungs- und Pflegekräfte kommen zum Einsatz. Der Umfang und die Art der illegalen Beschäftigung sowie die angestrebten Lösungen werden für sieben ausgewählte Länder Europas vorgestellt. Es zeigen sich vielfältige Ansätze zum gegenseitigen Lernen. Zudem wird deutlich, welche Forschungsbedarfe vorhanden sind. / How can high quality assistance and care for elderly people in their homes be assured? This is a significant question in many European coun-tries as public assistance is often insufficient to cover the actual need for domestic care. Undeclared workers are often used as low cost means to meet this need. The breadth and the types of illegal employment, and the types of intended solutions are presented for seven European countries. The diverse approaches are given to contextualise each other and to show where further research is needed.

Global Variations In The Political And Social Economy Of Care from the Author: Shahra Razavi. Care work, both paid and unpaid, contributes to well-being, social development and economic growth. But the costs of providing care are unequally borne across gender and social class. Feminist scholarship on the gendered construction of welfare provisioning and welfare regimes has produced a conceptually strong and empirically grounded analysis of care, reinforcing the necessity of rethinking the distinctions between "the public" and "the private" as well as the links between them. Yet this analysis, premised on post-industrial contexts, does not travel easily to other parts of the world. Many of its core assumptions – about family structures, labor markets, state capacities, and public social provisioning – do not hold for a wider range of countries. Drawing on original research on the care economy in three developing regions (Africa, Asia, Latin America), this volume addresses a major empirical lacuna while facilitating a conversation across the North-South divide.

Race Criminal Justice And Migration Control from the Author: Mary Bosworth. In an era of mass mobility, those who are permitted to migrate and those who are criminalized, controlled, and prohibited from migrating are heavily patterned by race. By placing race at the centre of its analysis, this volume brings together fourteen chapters that examine, question, and explain the growing intersection between criminal justice and migration control. Through the lens of race, we see how criminal justice and migration enmesh in order to exclude, stop, and excise racialized citizens and non-citizens from societies across the world within, beyond, and along borders. Neatly organized in four parts, the book begins with chapters that present a conceptual analysis of race, borders, and social control, moving to the institutions that make up and shape the criminal justice and migration complex. The remaining chapters are convened around the key sites where criminal justice and migration control intersect: policing, courts, and punishment. Together the volume presents a critical and timely analysis of how race shapes and complicates mobility and how racism is enabled and reanimated when criminal justice and migration control coalesce. Race and the meaning of race in relation to citizenship and belonging is excavated throughout the chapters presented in the book, thereby transforming the way we think about migration.

Ukrainian Migration To The European Union from the Author: Olena Fedyuk. This book brings together research findings from a variety of disciplines in this integrated study of the migration of Ukrainian nationals to the EU. It contextualizes and historicizes this migration against the background of the series of crises experienced by Ukraine and the wider region over the last thirty or so years, from the dissolution of the USSR, through EU border changes, to the failed economic reforms of independent Ukraine. The book reviews major publications in a variety of disciplines and in several languages, including Russian, Ukrainian and English. It provides a critical analysis of these authoritative sources, linking historical and contemporary texts to establish a longitudinal perspective on migration trends and practices. The spatial, temporal, gender and geopolitical aspects of migration are examined, with expert analysis of the implications for economics, immigration policies, and migration studies. The contributors also draw on national and international academic research and country-specific data to describe the experience of Ukrainian migration in six European countries: Poland, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. These detailed portraits identify the principal trends and will help researchers, policy makers, and students to a better understanding of the dynamics of migration flow in the region as a whole. “A timely volume covering many cases and many facets of Ukrainian mobility in the EU. A must have for all libraries.” Anna Triandafyllidou, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS) "Is Ukraine the Mexico of Europe, I once asked. It is one of the most eminent migration cases to study. This book fills an acute knowledge gap and is a rich and important contribution." Franck Düvell, University of Oxford “This collection offers a comprehensive historical and geographical analysis of various migratory patterns from Ukraine to different European countries. It is a must read for migration scholars and for anyone interested in this highly topical phenomenon.” Lena Näre, University of Helsinki

Governing International Labour Migration from the Author: Christina Gabriel. This book offers a critical examination of the way in which the nature and governance of international labour migration is changing within a globalizing environment. It examines how labour mobility and the governance of labour migration are changing by exploring the links between political economy and differentiated forms of labour migration. Additionally, it considers the effects of new social models of inclusion and exclusion on labour migration. Therefore, the book troubles the conventional dichotomies and categorizations – permanent vs. temporary; skilled vs. unskilled; legal vs. illegal -- that have informed migration studies and regulatory frameworks. Theoretically, this volume contributes to an ongoing project of reframing the study of migration within politics and international relations. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, drawing on examples from the European Union, North America and Asia, Governing International Labour Migration will be of interest to students and scholars of migration studies, IPE, international relations, and economics.
